Teen Mom OG star Amber Portwood recently launched her online clothing boutique at BeForeverHaute.com, and the response online has been overwhelmingly positive. There was a bit of confusion, however, after it was pointed out that some of her Forever Haute looks were available on other websites — some times for much less.
Here is one example from Twitter:

I did some searching on my own and came up with multiple sites offering the same dress with the exact same photo — albeit at a similar price to Amber’s ($82.99):
One of the sites (RedVelvetVintage.com) even had additional photos of the dress on the same model and photos of it on another model — neither of which are on Amber’s site:
After the confusion was brought to Amber’s attention, she took to Twitter to explain:
Hi loves! So I’m getting a lot of questions about my clothes. I need people to understand this is a boutique and I have all rights to the models I use because I go straight to the brand. People will take these pics illegally and send you a completely different product which has happened to me many times!! Lol so understand these are 4-5 star clothes straight from the retailer. You have to have a business license IRS Id among other things. So please don’t buy something for cheaper and get something completely different. Sending love everyone ?
UPDATE – An anti-Jenelle Twitter account retweeted the side-by-side photos above (with the $14 listing) and claimed that Amber was buying clothes from wish.com and reselling them through her boutique. Amber shared this angry reply, which threatened legal action:
This isn't true and is also illegal. If you keep making these comments I'm taking legal action. I take pride in my boutique!! https://t.co/B9ZH1pmrVB

In addition to her clarification about the multiple listings, Amber also recently revealed that she hopes to follow in Teen Mom OG co-star Farrah Abraham’s footsteps by offering children’s clothes:
What does everyone think about me adding a children's and infant section to my boutique??! Hit love or retweet for yes!! Sending love ?? pic.twitter.com/XyfWJsaA7L

There’s no word if Amber’s daughter Leah will have the power to hire and fire people. 😉
But wait! That’s not all you get with Amber! (My nod to TV salesmanship.) She is also looking to launch a charity benefiting women in need:

It’s starting to look like Farrah and Maci have some serious competition for top Teen Momtrepreneur! Catelynn may need to step up her game!
